Description

Easwaran invites you on a journey, an adventure to find the supreme goal of life. Easwaran is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. This is a collection of 15 informal talks in which he takes you on a spiritual journey. The last talk, giving the book its title, likens the journey to Easwaran's return to his home in the Blue Mountains of the Nilgiris. "How long have I taken to see through the playthings of the world and come home? This is my home. This is everyone's home, where the Divine Mother waits with open arms for all her children to be reunited with her." "These essays sparkle with the humor and insight that have made Eknath Easwaran a popular teacher for over 30 years . . . Easwaran clarifies spiritual practice with vivid, concrete metaphors drawn from his years of observing people, animals, and the natural world. He certainly doesn't downplay the difficulty of the meditative quest, which in order to be successful will cost us everything we have. But he does present its rewards so persuasively that it's hard to resist the impulse to sit down and start right away." - Yoga Journal
